These are the 6 most expensive Indian wines

Zampa Insignia

There is a red wine Grover serves - just a bit - straight from the barrel. That is Insignia 2015, which debuted in the market in 2016. It is India's most expensive wine at Rs 5,000 a bottle. Insignia 2014, with a super limited production of 300 bottles, was launched after "24 months of oak contact".

Cost: Rs 5000
Fratelli Sette

Sette is the most premium among the reserve wines from the house of Fratelli. The current vintage 2011 is a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon and is elegant and beautifully balanced.

Cost: Rs 1800


Rasa Cabernet Sauvignon

Rasa Cabernet Sauvignon is carefully hand harvested from very low yielding vineyards from Dindori estate. Aged in premium French oak barrels for over a year and then further matured in the bottle before release, makes this wine elegant, velvety smooth and perfectly balanced. It can be enjoyed in the full flush of youth or cellared for a future special occasion. Just 500 cases of Rasa Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 were produced, making this a true collector's edition wine.

Cost: Rs 1750


Zampa ChĂȘne Grande Reserve

ChĂȘne is a blend of Tempranillo and Syrah and aged for 15 months in oak making it more of a New World style exploit - decidedly dominant and unabashedly oaky. Long after the sip, one can still recollect the taste of toasted coffee on the palate. It is a bold wine and, going by the international awards it has won so far, well-liked not just on home turf.

Cost: Rs 1700


Charosa Reserve Tempranillo

Tempranillo is the next big grape on Indian soil and this is probably why: It is most suited to hot climes and the people at Charosa have used this fact to their advantage. Their first vintage of the Reserve Tempranillo was so outstanding that it has inspired other wineries in the region to experiment with it.

Cost: Rs 1700

Vijay Amritraj Reserve Collection Red

Inspired from Vijay Amritraj's legendary feats and iconic style of play, the Grover VA Collection exemplifies the finest wine India has to offer to the world. As inspiring as the man himself, the wine is inimitably diverse yet smooth to the palate and gracefully well rounded to deliver a rich experience of Indian terroir. The diversity comes from the varied inspirations and a unique graceful blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier, which is rich in fruit and supple in texture, juxtaposed with a fine grain French oak and the powerful flavours of blackberry and blackcurrant.

Cost: Rs 1450
